Stuttgart New Palace

Stuttgart, Germany

The New Palace (das Neue Schloss) is built in late Baroque style. From 1746 to 1797 and from 1805 to 1807, it served as a residence of the kings of Württemberg. The palace stands adjacent to the Old Castle.

The castle was almost destroyed by Allied bombing during World War II and was reconstructed between 1958 and 1964. During this time most of the inside of the castle was also restored and the building was used by the Baden-Württemberg State Parliament. Today it is used by the State Ministries of Finance and Education. Public tours of the building are only permitted by special arrangement.

Schlossplatz is adjacent to two other popular squares in Stuttgart: Karlsplatz to the south and Schillerplatz to the south west. The former German President, Richard von Weizsäcker was born in the New Castle on April 15, 1920.

I don’t understand what the hype was but I wasn’t even allowed to go inside this palace. It’s just a building form outside

I can’t believe I finally got to see the interior of the New Palace in Stuttgart. It’s not open to the public except on the night of the open museums. I cannot recommend doing that more. So beautiful and so opulent.

The palace is lit during Christmas and New year's. Even otherwise, it's an exquisite spot in the bang in the middle of Stuttgart city. Thi surroundings are amazing to enjoy and relax with lots of city hush-hush and on the contrary, greeny around the lake behind the Schloss.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
